Fania All-StarsLive At The Red Garter Vol 1 ... CD
Fania, 1972. New Copy ... $12.99
A Latin soul party – beyond compare! The album's a completely wonderful live set that really captures the energy, excitement, and warm sociability of the hip New York scene at the end of the 60s. The music is stunning – a freewheeling blend of jazz, soul, and Latin themes – played with effortless ease by a lineup that includes Joe Bataan, Ray Barretto, Willie Colon, Larry Harlow, Bobby Quesada, Louie Ramirez, Ralph Robles, and some of the other heavy-hitters of the Latin soul years. (Just imagine trying to get so many jazz or rock talents together on one stage – it would never happen!) The album's incredible – and even the spoken introductions and crowd noise really help set the feel of the era's mighty magic power! Titles on this first volume include "Country Girl-City Man", "Mi Gusta El Son", and "Guatacando". Firey stuff, and one of their best records! CD

Mongo SantamariaRed Hot ... CD
Tappan Zee/Victor (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
A great Bob James-directed session from Mongo Santamaria – and a set that takes the fusion-inflected Latin work he was doing on the Vaya label, and blends it with an even tighter, sharper CTI Records vibe! The approach is a bit like that combination of underground Latin and larger label resources that brought great sounds to both Ray Barretto and the Fania All Stars at the time – and the session features excellent CTI help from Bob James on keyboards, Eric Gale on guitar, and Hubert Laws on flute – the latter of whom got his start working with Mongo in the 60s! Titles include a funky electric remake of "Watermelon Man", plus the cuts "Afro Cuban Fantasy", "Jamaican Sunrise", "Jai Alai", and "Sambita". CD

✨✧ MachitoMachito At The Crescendo ... LP
GNP, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
An obscure west coast session by Machito – recorded at the Crescendo night club in LA , but done in the same hard style as Machito's groundbreaking New York sides of the time. Graciela sings vocals on a few cuts, and Machito and the trio sing on a few more – but the other half of the album is instrumental, and we actually like those titles more. Tunes include "Pachanga A La Crescendo", "Mangos", "Maggie's Mambo", "Cuban Fantasy", and "Bernie & The Wolf". The record's got some nice jazzy bits, with a good hard live feel that's a bit different from some of Machito's studio work. LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing, with deep groove. Cover has light wear in one spot, but is nice overall.)

Riverside, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $16.99
One of Noro Morales' hippest albums of the time – a tight set done for Riverside Records, with a jazzier edge than some of his other records! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original red label pressing with deep groove!)

✨✧ Tito PuenteExciting Tito Puente Band In Hollywood ... LP
GNP, 1961. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
One of the greatest jazz-based albums ever recorded by Tito Puente – a rare west coast session cut for the GNP label! The sound here is leaner, cleaner, and more swinging than some of Tito's work of the period for Tico Records – with some especially great work in the lead from the horns, cutting and carving out some very dynamic lines that really live up to the percussive undercurrent set up by Puente! Personnel is unfortunately not named – but there's some great vibes in the mix on a few numbers, plus a bit of flute as well. Titles include "Ojos Negras", "Pajaro Cho Gui", "Ah Vah", "Pachanga Flute", "TP on the Strip", "Baila Pachanga", and "Negra Bon Bon". LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy red label pressing with deep groove!)
